    Prohibitively Rare Iowa Territory Note

    Dubuque Lead Mines, Iowa Territory- Miners Bank of Dubuque $5 G2 Oakes 58-1
    An excessively rare Iowa Territorial issue. This bank received its charter on November 30, 1836 when Dubuque (along with the rest of Iowa) was a part of the Wisconsin Territory. This is only the second example we have had to offer from the Iowa Territory in any CAA sale, and one of just a handful of specimens known. This note is different in form and design from the piece we sold in our last sale from this bank, although similar in grade. That note sold for $2415, and we expect this Fine-Very Fine specimen with one tiny reverse repair which is payable in Cincinnati will do as well if not better here.
